Kenny Leon, Artistic Director of True Colors Theatre Company, is hosting a group of celebrity guests from the entertainment, sports, and media worlds for a two-day event of entertainment and golf to raise funds for the theatre company’s education programs including the National August Wilson Monologue Competition for high school students.

The festivities will begin the morning of Friday, May 19, 2017, at the exclusive Golf Club of Georgia. Golfing participants get to enjoy this prestigious, private club and join Kenny Leon and Samuel L. Jackson as they battle it out for the “Kenny Cup”. The day will include a breakfast, ladies golf clinic, a buffet lunch, raffle prizes and awards reception in the clubhouse. It is impossible to play at the Golf Club of Georgia unless you are the guest of a member, so do not miss your chance to swing your clubs at this beautiful course.

Other celebrity participants include “black-ish” star Anthony Anderson, actress LaTanya Richardson, NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Queen Sugar’s Glynn Turman and media personality Tavis Smiley.

On the evening of Saturday, May 20, 2017 (day 2) celebrities and gala guests will gather for an exclusive party that will include dinner, cocktails, a silent and live auction, and celebrity entertainment including a performance by Grammy Award Winning Artist, Stephanie Mills, at Tony Conway’s Flourish in Atlanta.

Celebrities in attendance will include Usher Raymond, Earl Billings, Tory Kittles, Eugene Lee, Flex Alexander, Malik Yoba, Will Lowery, Duke Fakir, and more.

This two-day fundraiser is being chaired by Fredricka Whitfield, news anchor for CNN; Lynn Jarrett-Gude, Executive Vice President of Gude Management Group and Samuel L. Gude III, CEO of Gude Management Group.
